Join us for the revamp and renewal of Eco Book Club, sponsored by We Are Neutral.
For the first meetup of 2018 we will discussing _Engineering Eden: The True Story of a Violent Death, a Trial, and the Fight over Controlling Nature_ by Jordan Fisher Smith.
The book focuses on the civil trial following the 1972 death of Harry Walker from a bear attack in Yellowstone National Park. What followed was a struggle to define the role and responsibility of the National Park Service to protect it's visitors and in effect control nature.
